MS12-030: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2663830)

high Nessus Plugin ID 59038
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft Office.

Description

The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft Office, Excel, or a related product that is affected by several vulnerabilities.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted Excel file, they could leverage these issues to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Excel 2003, 2007, 2010, Office 2007, 2010, Excel Viewer, and Office Compatibility Pack.
